INTERVIEW WITH DIRECTOR OF MIGHTY PEKING MAN

Postby kpa » Mon Mar 07, 2005 3:39 am

The 1977 Shaw Brothers film MIGHTY PEKING MAN was Hong Kong’s first giant monster movie and featured special effects by many of the Toho crew behind the Godzilla series, including Sadamasa Arikawa (GODZILLA VS THE SEA MONSTER, DESTROY ALL MONSTERS) and Koichi Kawakita (the Heisei Godzilla series). The recent Japanese DVD release included a text interview by Steve Ryfle and Craig Hale Allen with the film's director, Ho Meng-Hua, which is now available in English on Henshin! Online.

wow, that is cool. Ho Meng Wa did a few oddball movies- BLACK MAGIC and BLACK MAGIC II which are worth a look. his English "name" was Homer Go in the credits, which is funnier now.
i really enjoy GOLIATHON, much more than kino, the movie it was made to capitolize on. Evelyn also did THE DEADLY ANGELS for the Shaws, but sadly isn't wearing the jungle outfit.
